End-User Portal, Vehicle Architecture, and Wireless “Tool Box” Amongst 7 New Projects
Formulated for Implementation
August 27, 2010 Orono, Maine - The now completed CANEUS 2010 Fly-by-Wireless Workshop
has identified eight key projects to be implemented within a 24 month timeframe.
Leaders from among the world’s top aerospace authorities have been identified and
project implementation plans have been put in place. Furthermore, four wireless
projects from the 2009 Fly-by-Wireless Workshop in Montreal continue to move forward
and have gathered further support here in Maine.
A mid-year review, scheduled for Jan-Feb 2011 period in Europe, will evaluate the
progress of these projects; however the real successes and the concrete results
of these initiatives will be seen at the next Fly by Wireless Workshop scheduled
for May 17-20, 2011 in Montreal, followed by June 6-9, 2012 in Ottawa, and June
5-8, 2013 in Portland.
NEW Project Strategic
Wi-Portal: End-Users Requirements Portal
No: CANEUS FBW10-01)
This activity will review and summarize all valid system requirements and metrics
per application groups for the long life development of the FBW platform.
Wi-Evaluation: Evaluate Existing Wireless & Less Wire Technologies
No: CANEUS FBW10-02)
This activity will include cooperative exchange of testing, results and hardware/systems
as well as use real world environments and test scenarios to solve real world problems.
Wi-ToolBox: Wireless “Tool Box”
No: CANEUS FBW10-03)
The third activity will evaluate and classify available sensors and wireless solutions
with values to the proposed projects.
Wi-Architecture: Vehicle Architecture Studies
No: CANEUS FBW10-04)
This project will study high level system engineering models with metrics and technology
Wi-Networks: Wireless Networks Studies
No: CANEUS FBW10-05)
Activity five will create provisions for wireless system engineering and system
simulation platform, by converting known system requirements into functional definitions
and requirements towards system specifications.
Wi-Business: Business Case studies
No: CANEUS FBW10-06)
Activity six will analyze the cost-benefit of wireless versus wired solutions with
realistic metrics, by performing a comprehensive business case analysis including
weight, cost, environmental factors, flexibility, modularity, safety, reliability
and other relevant factors. A white paper will result.
Wi-Demo: Small Project Demonstration
No: CANEUS FBW10-07)
Activity seven will evaluate the cost-benefit of wireless solutions for monitoring
stress/strain during aircraft’s landing, by performing a comprehensive business
case analysis and providing a demonstration on monitoring.
FBW09 Project Progression
The CANEUS 2009 Fly-by-Wireless Workshop produced four wireless projects:
Wi-Testbed (Project No: CANEUS FBW09-01)
Wi-Engine (Project No: CANEUS FBW09-02)
Wi-Sense (Project No: CANEUS FBW09-03)
Wi-SHM (Project No: CANEUS FBW09-04)
These Wi-projects received new life and new funding proposals, as well as gained
new support from FBW 2010 attending organizations.
The future of CANEUS Wireless Work and Workshops:
With enthusiasm and effectiveness leading the way, the next 3 CANEUS workshops were
Montreal (May 17-20, 2011)
Ottawa (June 6-9, 2012) preceding the ICC2012
TBC, June 5-8, 2013
Here the progress of these various initiatives will be measured and new needs of
the aerospace industry will be addressed. We look forward to your participation
next year in Montreal!
How to Join / Participate
in CANEUS Fly-by-Wireless Projects?
The CANEUS Workshops are open form. However, any and all CANEUS Consortia projects
are restricted to CANEUS Members / affiliates. The CANEUS Members / Affiliates include
large Primes, Small Industries, Universities, Laboratories, and Government Agencies.
Those organizations that were unable to participate at the workshop are welcome
to send their expression of interest to the CANEUS Secretariat and may also consult
the CANEUS website.
CANEUS International Membership Campaign Director Ms. Susan Bales and her partners
have been working hard on to help facilitate the membership and interested organizations
are urged to contact her 202.302.1736 (mobile) or 910.398.8364 (land line).
On behalf of CANEUS International, Our sincere thanks to all the FBW10 Committee
Members, sponsors, and supporting organizations that have contributed to and worked
on the FBW 2010 workshop and the previous ones. Particularly, we value the partnership
between IEEE Montreal / Maine Sections as well several IEEE divisions and very much
looking forward to strengthen in the years ahead!
CANEUS is also grateful for the support by the University of Maine and would like
to take this opportunity to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Ali Abedi and his team
at the University as well Dr. Anader Benyamin-Seeyar of Concordia University.
Last and most important, much of the success of this workshop owes to the hard work
and dedication by my colleagues Ms. Kelly Schwab and Mr. Allan Reyes at CANEUS International
